Description

“…Live the life you have imagined” in this magnificent in-town Federalist Colonial, where Thoreau wrote much of ‘Walden’ and Louisa May penned ‘Jo’s Boys’. Residing on a coveted stretch of Main Street, the Thoreau-Alcott House is just steps to library, shops, restaurants, commuter rail and miles of nearby conserved trails. Beautifully transported into the 21st C, this wonderful family home has many recent updates that seamlessly blend the classic original architecture with modern amenities: recently renovated kitchen and family room featuring Carrara marble island, granite countertops and top of the line appliances, newly refinished wood floors and fresh modern wall colors throughout. Soaring front windows, high ceilings, 9 working fireplaces and most private 3/4 acre parcel enhanced with a heated Gunite pool and magnificent grounds.

A rare chance to own a treasure and a special piece of Concord’s remarkable history.
